Children with additional needs
Our aim is to accept, embrace and support any child at our school that has a disability or additional needs.
Some students need additional support to help them meet their potential and extra funding is available through the Catholic Education Office for students who meet the criteria for the Literacy, Numeracy and Special Learning Needs (LNSLN) Program.
To be eligible for funding through this program, the student must have a significant intellectual, sensory, physical, social or emotional impairment or more than one of those impairments.
The objective of the Literacy, Numeracy and Special Learning Needs (LNSLN) Program is to improve the learning outcomes of educationally disadvantaged students, particularly in literacy and numeracy, by contributing funding for additional teaching and learning assistance.
Applications for funding are made on the student’s behalf by our Special Needs Co-ordinator, Megan Walton. Parents/family or Carers are closely involved in this process.
If you believe your child may be eligible for additional funding under the LNSLN Program, please contact the school office.
